This class will explore the predictable physiologic changes associated with aging, as well as the impacts of social context, beliefs, life experiences, habits, etc. that impact them.
"Geriatric" is broadly defined as age 65. The reality, however, is more nuanced and more individual. Elder clients, like experienced therapists, bring their whole life to the table: they are unique. We will discuss and demonstrate ways to meet the changing physical, mental and emotional needs of this rapidly expanding age group.
Participants: 6 minimum / 16 maximum
What to bring / wear: Sheets, massage lotion. Wear comfortable clothing
Teacher: Leslie Smith
